Lenovo Phab2 Pro review: A phone-like object wrapped around Project Tango

The Lenovo Phab2 Pro is not the first device to have Google's Tango augmented reality platform, but it's the first one to be aimed at consumers. It's also the first Lenovo-branded smartphone to launch in the US. With the Phab2 Pro, you can see virtual items overlaid in the real world, or explore virtual worlds by moving around in the real one. But let's not forget, this is a phone too. People will presumably buy this product to carry around with them on a daily basis, but it's only available as a $500 unlocked device. So, it's up to Lenovo to make a good pitch to US phone buyers who have more choices than ever before.

[Deal Alert] Best Buy offers the Verizon prepaid version of the Moto G4 Play for just $35, no service required

The Moto G series has become something of a fixture of the mid-range and low-end Android market, thanks to a combination of competent hardware and clean software. That's no less true now that Motorola has gone modular with its flagship Z series - in fact, I'll bet that a few fans of the old Moto X models are moving down the line. Today Best Buy is offering the Verizon prepaid Moto G4 Play, normally $85, for a jaw-dropping $34.99. You don't even have to buy any service to get the phone - nice!

The Xperia Ear app is now available on Google Play

Sony's Xperia Ear has been available since earlier this month (or mid-October if you count pre-orders) after being announced at MWC in February, and now we have the final piece of the puzzle: the companion app, allowing users to configure and control the app according to personal preference.

For a brief recap, when you put the Ear into, um, your ear, it will tell you your schedule, the weather, and the latest news. It has a gyroscope and accelerometer, so it can tell what position it's in, when you're walking, or if you're asleep. This means you can nod to confirm something, which is pretty cool, or shake your head to decline.

Blink home security camera review: An interesting proposition that falters in execution

When I first heard about the Blink security cameras, I was immediately impressed and intrigued. Having tried both the Piper and Canary in my pharmacy, to more or less mitigated results, the Blink seemed like the perfect solution.

Piper (full review) suffers from one major flaw: the camera doesn't turn itself back on after a power failure if the back-up battery is empty (and since we have lots of blackouts here in Lebanon, I got tired of buying new batteries every two or three weeks). It also doesn't have a native scheduled arm/disarm feature; I really shouldn't have to manually arm and disarm my cameras when a simple time-based schedule is easy to implement.

[Deal Alert] Logitech Harmony Smart Control $69.99 at Amazon and Best Buy ($60 off)

Logitech's Harmony remotes are probably the best smart remotes in the business - they're easy to use, quick to set up, and well made. Today the Harmony Smart Control is $60 off on Amazon or Best Buy - 46% off - bringing the price down to $69.99.

The Harmony Smart Control means many appliances in your house - cable TV boxes, streaming boxes, televisions, game consoles and a lot more - can be controlled via either the included remote, or your phone provided you download the app from Google Play. This is made possible through the Harmony Hub, which converts RF signals to either Bluetooth or infrared, letting your phone control anything the Harmony system is compatible with - that's over 270,000 devices.
